Florence has so many beautiful gardens, it can be hard to choose which ones to visit. The most famous one is the Boboli Garden. These gardens can best be described as an outdoor museum, with the abundance of statues and fountains within. You could easily spend an entire afternoon strolling the vast grounds on a sunny day. If you want to escape the city crowds, the Rose Garden is a favorite of locals and a truly tranquil spot to soak in the views of Florence surrounded by sweet smelling roses. It’s a little off the beaten track but your host will easily be able to get you there.
Your local host can also take you to the lesser known Giardino Bardini, which many Florentines consider to be even more beautiful than the more popular Boboli Gardens. This Renaissance garden offers panoramic views of the city from its grounds filled with lush greenery and fragrant fresh flowers.
